cups frozen small whole onions
3

1/2
cup dry red wine
 
Hot cooked mashed potatoes (optional)

Oooh I've always wanted to make that.  I just might have to make that tomorrow!  I have everything but the mushrooms.
TFS!  I was about to have to look up a chicken recipe for tomorrow and this is perfect.  You saved me some time ;)

You're very welcome :) I added a little more of the beefy onion mix and a little more wine. I was asked to make it again.

You make the potatoes separately. Or you could make a different side and leave the mushrooms out.

I don't usually get excited about chicken but this one sounds simple but delicious! I bet it's going to be yummy!  Got my crock pot pulled out and my chicken thawing in the fridge now.    :)

 Though this isn't really classic Coq au Vin, it does sound good. My family likes chicken thighs and would probably like this. Glad your family liked it.
